Summary

Dark, atmospheric and ironically funny

The Good

Discworld Noir's is a great detective mystery with more unexpected twists than your average rollercoaster. The plot is great, and never predictable, and although Pratchett himself didn't write much of it, his humour shines throughout. It isn't slapstick comedy as in the first 2 Discworld games, but that doesn't mean it's not there - sarcasm and irony are used often, if you pay attention.

Graphically, DW Noir is simply amazing, one of the most gorgeous and atmospheric adventure games there are. And of course, who could forget the sound? Mellow jazz is usually played, and the sound effects are top-notch too.

The Bad

Um. Pass.

The Bottom Line

Absolutely amazing. Play it if you're a Pratchett fan, or an adventure fan, or if you just like having fun.
